Marks and reviews
Owned since 2005 by the Merlaut family, managed by Céline Villars Foubet and Jean-Pierre Foubet, Château de Camensac is an estate founded in the 18th century in the Haut-Médoc appellation. This 5th Grand Cru Classé of 1855 was the subject of significant investments, both in the vineyard and in the cellar, which enabled the estate to be equipped with the best equipment. Château de Camensac now stands out as an important Bordeaux reference, offering fantastic value for price.
An unmissable name in Haut-Médoc, the Château de Camensac vineyard comprises 25 hectares of vines. The vines are planted in two different types of soil: the Gunzian gravel found in Saint-Julien and the Graffernian gravel found in Pessac-Léognan. It is from these two types of soil that give the wines of Château de Camensac their unique character.
The year 2009 had a cold and wet start to the season and a particularly dry end to the summer. Despite these conditions, the growth cycle was regular, flowering was rapid and the veraison even. The wide temperature range between the days and nights during August and September was ideal for preserving the heat despite the high temperatures. The Indian summer lasted until the beginning of October.
Cabernet Sauvignon (55%)
The colour is dark and shining.
The nose is lively and expressive, releasing intense notes of red fruit and floral scents.
The attack is precise and enveloping. Supple and silky, the palate unveils tight and velvety tannins as well as a rich and creamy aromatic structure.
This Haut-Médoc wine can be laid down until 2030.
